Australia LAND 400 UPDATE:

STATUS: Still in coordinated Manufacturers Trials w/Army.

Australian Army receives first 25 LANCER BOXER's. DON'T GET TOO EXCITED.

QOUTE: "Delivery of the first 25 vehicles enables Army to continue towards Initial Operating Capability on schedule as Rheinmetall moves into the next phase of the LAND 400 Phase 2 program."

If the HAWKIE Program is an indication on how the evaluation process will go, we're looking at 2-3 years for FOC earliest.

Gotta Go!!

Pat

Well another update I saw coming but, wish it wouldn't have happened to a program that's ALREADY 4 YEARS BEHIND schedule. I speak of AJAX and quite frankly this is nothing less than embarrassing especially in blaming France for the UK problems with their CITW 40mm when it was the UK that deviated from the loading system design. That I posted on earlier this year in this thread and now again this issue has popped up...

IOC in 2021 well in my opinion, good luck with that!?!

I've got a beautiful bridge in NYC I'm selling called the "Brooklyn Bridge" for anyone interested!?!

Regards,
Pat

British procurement "strategy" in the last few decades has been utterly and totally abysmal. You would think it was a script from "Yes Minister" but unfortunately it is actuality, not a comedy show. Oh - perhaps it is meant to be a comedy show!

Not being able to go faster than 20MPH is a problem as is not being able to back up over an 8 inch "obstacle"

Is this vehicle modeled in the German OOB? It's called the Mungo. I didn't see it unless it's called something else in game terms.

What is similar and ( sort of .....) serves the same purpose is the Rheinmetall Yak U323 look for MRAV APC in Misc starting 2006

https://www.bundeswehr.de/de/ausrues...wehr/duro3-yak

calls it the Duro 3 Yak

UPDATE: UK BOXER

STATUS: Preparatory to construction of first PROTOTYPES.

WHEN: Late 2022. First type will be the Mechanized Infantry Version (MIV) coming from Germany. This will be the precursor of a follow on order for 500 BOXER's in if I remember 4 variants.

UPDATE: French JAGUAR

Status: French Army has just begun their evaluation of the JAGUAR. The evaluation is being conducted by STAT (Section Technique de l’Armée de Terre, Technical Section of the Ground Force).

Analysis: It appears the "manufacturers" testing is now complete or winding down. No further timeline is given. I'm thinking this phase will last about a year. At the end of this it'll go back to NEXTER to make any fixes or modifications the French Army identifies.

At that point we can discuss IOC-MAYBE. I don't believe it's intended to reach FOC much before mid-2023 or first half of 2024.

The pictures are worth the "price of admission" especially the first inside turret view and the "slat armor" which makes me wonder, is the armor protection not as good as thought!?! These are the first pictures I've seen of the JAGUAR running around with that attached.

UPDATE for UK AJAX. There's "A whole lotta shaken goin on here!!",
this from the 9th...

Borsuk APC

Poland nearly finishing tests of new domestic APC [Badger] build by HSW which will be replacement for old BWP-1. As for now three prototypes are build and last was tested during exercises Dragon-21. Borsuk will have new local build turret unmanned ZSSW-30 which is also projected to be used on Rosomak APC equipped in 30mm Mk44S Bushmaster II chain gun, 7.62mm UKM-2000C coaxial machine gun and Spike ATGM launcher in box on right side.
